And the force shut down option is present?

If not do the following:
Warning: When you perform a hard power off, this has the same effect as switching off the power switch on a physical computer. Only do this if it is absolutely necessary as it may cause data loss or file system corruption.

To force a virtual machine to power off:
1.From the Fusion menu bar, click and hold on Virtual Machine.
2.Press and hold down the Option (Alt) key. The menu option for Shut Down changes to
   Force Shut Down. (In Fusion 2.x and earlier, it changes to Power Off).
3.Click Force Shut Down. (In Fusion 2.x and earlier, click Power Off).

I guess the install of Vmware Tools was going on, this is why it froze the VM.
